A Taste for the Good Life
weekends with yankee

This week on Weekends with Yankee, senior food editor Amy Traverso meets up with Boston celebrity chef Tiffani Faison to tour three of her six restaurants and cook one of her signature dishes. Then it's off to Richmond, Rhode Island, where adventurer Richard Wiese saddles up to explore the Preserve Sporting Club on horseback, followed by flyfishing, sporting clays, and a visit to the luxury retreat's "Hobbit Houses." Finally, in Westbrook, Maine, Kate Shaffer of Ragged Coast Chocolates shows us what's involved in making her award-winning confections. She also shares her story of bringing an unexpected dream to life, as she and her husband had no prior candy-making experience when they first founded their business, only a strong desire to do something that would allow them to keep living on the Maine island they had grown to love.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 46 seconds

About Weekends with Yankee:

WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE is a 13-part travel and lifestyle series named for the long-running publication enjoyed by readers across America for more than 80 years.

With New England among the nation's top tourist destinations, the magazine-style program takes viewers on an insider's exploration of the cities, countryside locales and far-flung places in the quaint and scenic region.

The series is hosted by Richard Wiese, (Born to Explore) , an Emmy Award-winning TV personality, author and explorer who has traveled to all seven continents, participated in two expeditions to Antarctica, and cross-country skied to the North Pole.

Amy Traverso, a senior food editor at Yankee magazine who has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and the Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay, joins Richard as co-host.

She highlights recipes, local flavors and the sense of community that make up the regions' food and dining scene.

WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE offers an "all-access" behind-the-scenes pass to the unique attractions that define the region, and the hidden New England that only locals know.
